NY Aquarium Considers Evacuating Animals Due to Power Loss

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

If you live in an area hit by Hurricane Sandy, you’ve probably noticed the gas shortage. Without power, or gas to run generators, hospitals have been sending their patients to other facilities. Seems like the NY Aquarium at Coney Island is now facing a similar issue.

Ecorazzi isn’t really a friend to aquariums. Keeping large animals in small tanks is hardly a kindness. But, in this situation, the animals are facing a greater threat. New York’s Coney Island aquarium may have to relocate 12,000 animals including walruses, sea turtles, sharks, penguins and a giant octopus.

According to USA Today, the staff is working hard to restore filtration and other necessary life-support systems, but the area was hit hard by the storm. And they don’t know when power will be restored. The flooded aquarium does not know if any resident animals have died yet. They did release photos of the damage.

These creatures are powerless to help themselves. We hope others can help rescue them and that the stress of the ordeal isn’t too much to handle.

    The aquarium is right outside my window. The pools look destroyed and the place itself looks like its been deserted for months. Haven’t seen the inside though.

If the Syrian author of that poem could go vegan, anyone in our era can buck far milder social pressures and go vegan.
